Columbia students are invited to attend the annual Columbia Student Lobby Day in Albany, NY, on Tuesday, Feb. 26. Participants will take a bus to Albany for a day of meetings with state legislators or their staff. The trip includes a briefing about how to lobby effectively. This is a great opportunity to advocate for the New York State student aid programs and learn about the legislative process.
The bus will depart from 116th Street & Broadway at 7:30 a.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 26, and will depart Albany at 3:00 p.m. Breakfast and lunch are provided.
Columbia's Office of Government Affairs, along with the Health Sciences Office of Government and Community Affairs and Barnard College Office of the General Counsel, coordinate lobbying efforts to help support funding for the state student aid programs.
To sign up for the 2002 Student Lobby Day in Albany, send an e-mail including your name, school, graduation year, phone number, and hometown/permanent address.
